  • The Maynooth University Student Experience (MUSE) Awards recognise your contribution to activities outside your degree, for example, participating in a club or society, volunteering with a community organsiation, working in your local shop and much more!. This Award is an achievement that distinguishes yourself to potential future employers.​
  • Project Live gives you the opportunity to apply what you are learning in the classroom to real-world challenges facing business, community organsiations, and society today.
